Based on 2016 the book by Matt Ruff, the series follows the journeys of Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) across 1950s Jim Crow America as they overcome the racist terrors and terrifying monsters ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft novel.

The panel – moderated by Sarah Rodman – featured cast members, Jurnee Smollett, Jonathan Majors, Michael Kenneth Williams, Aunjanue Ellis, Wunmi Mosaku, Abbey Lee, and Courtney B. Vance. The panel covered the show in-depth – including the characters and their relationships to each other – as well as the significance of the show’s themes and what racism looked like both in 1950s America and today.
